than hillary clinton took. to a certain extent you expect he would get greater scrutiny given that he has chosen to accept the role. what is funny about the scrutiny, is how over the top harsh it is. the "new york times" articles not worth talk about chris matthews but you know there has been a systemic effort i think to go after ted cruz to marginalize him and make him look crazy. conservatives look at ted cruz and they want someone in washington who is willing to disrupt the old order. the problem with washington is the way it operated. if you have a senator who comes in and challenges the convention, like most conservatives myself included we think it's a good thing. >> bret: mara there was a lot of conservatives a in the beginning of sarah palin before she had tough interviews there at the beginning believed that the media had it out for her and thought there was a derangement syndrome there, that they were focused on the fact it was a successful conservative woman. this is a successful conservative latino hispanic lawmaker and are we getting in derangement syndrome with ted cruz?
